Creamy Sundried Tomato Spaghetti with Chicken

Here is a delicious recipe for spaghetti tossed with a sundried tomato cream sauce and chicken. This is one of my favorite pasta dishes because it’s incredibly flavorful and a little fancier than what I usually make, so it can be made for a quick dinner or special occassion. I added a side of roasted Brussels sprouts to complete the meal.

Ingredients
  1. 1 pound whole grain spaghetti
  2. 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  3. ½ tsp salt
  4. ½ tsp black pepper
  5. 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  6. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  7. ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  8. 1¼ cups Chardonnay (or chicken broth)
  9. ¾ cup heavy cream
  10. 2/3 cup sundried tomatoes, julienned
  11. ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  12. ¼ tsp dried thyme
  13. ¼ tsp dried oregano
  14. ¼ tsp dried basil
  15. 1/4 cup sliced green onions or basil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, then cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain and set aside when done cooking.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper on each side.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. You may need to sear the chicken in batches to prevent steaming in the pan.
  5. Place chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet and place into oven. Roast until completely cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet. Add minced garlic and red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring frequently, until garlic begins to brown, about 1-2 minutes. Stirr in Chardonnay (or chicken broth), heavy cream, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, thyme, oregano, and basil.
  7. Bring the sauce to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.
  8. Add cooked spaghetti to the sauce and stir until well coated.
  9. When chicken is cooked through, add to the pan.
  10. Garnish with green onions and/or basil, if desired, and serve immediately.
